D.C. United moves in Open Cup final

Two MLS teams with different approaches met in the semifinals of the U.S. Open Cup. Playing at full strength, D.C. United beat the defending champion New England Revolution, which started only three players who have started at least half of their MLS games, 3-1, on Tuesday to advance to the final.

Brazilian Luciano Emilio scored two goals -- one early and one late -- to beat the Revs.

New England, which had won last week's SuperLiga, started three second-year players and five rookies, including 18-year-old Brandon Manzonelli, who made his first professional start, playing the first 75 minutes at forward.

The loss was marked the first time this season that the Revs lost back-to-back games in all competitions. They had gone 25 games without losing two straight matches.

GAME SUMMARY:
Aug. 12 in Washington, D.C.
D.C. United 3 New England Revolution 1. Goals: Emilio 4, 81, Quaranta 48; Germanese 34.
D.C. United -- Wells, Martinez, McTavish, Peralta, Namoff, Guerrero (Kirk, 86), Simms, Quaranta (Vide, 79), Fred (Zaher, 88), Emilio (Dyachenko, 89), Moreno.
